9:01 am
absolutely perfect 6 r5 your daytime high more de-- 65 your daytime high more details in the forecast. well, it did not take very long for the jury to convict brittany norwood of first degree murder in the lululemon murder trial. >> she faces life in prison for killing jana murray back in march in the lululemon store. >> more than anything, i know the trauma, our family has been through, i want no other family to go through this. and i felt the brutality was undescribable. >> my sister, um, was fighting for what was right and that helped us through this trial, to make sure that what was right, was done in the end.
9:02 am
>> the murrays were very appreciative after the verdict thanking the jury, police media, fox 5s paul wagner joins us onset he has been following the case since day one done the daily debriefings with us. i guess the first question were you surprised at the quickens of the verdict, it took less than an hour. >> i have been doing these jury trials for quite awhile now i can't really be surprised by what a jury does we heard lawyers say that all the times the true you just can't predict what a jury is going to do. i actually was telling some of janas friends last night i thought they might take the night because there was so much to go through and the judge said they were only going to let them deliberate until 7:30 p.m. we were up in the hallway outside the courtroom, suddenly there was a movement, people moving around and i saw the state's attorney coming through and we knew something was up and it was quick. >> at the end it came down to
9:03 am
what we had been talking about premeditation, that piece saw some very gruesome -- the weapons used, to kill jana murray tough to be in there and hearing the family there, you can really feel their pain. >> i was sitting in the first row on the left side when the jury was shown the autopsy photos and the judge made a decision not to put them on the projector, so that the whole courtroom could see it, so if you were sitting on the left side behind the jury you could see them and they were unbelievable. to see the sustained wounds to her head, were indescribable other than it was a savage attack and i can feel for those jurors, who have seen those photos and then try to decide what to do, because it really showed you, that this was a sustained attack as john
9:04 am
mccarthy said, it happened in the back hallway numerous weapons used, the medical examiner said on the stand yesterday that minimum of five weapons were used they believed there was a metal merchandise tag just an ugly weapon, as well as a hammer, box cutters, crescent wrench and their theory was these weapons had been assembled by brittany norwood in that back room so they could attack jana murray after luring her there. >> people who are not attorneys, wondering theorizing since the jury returned this verdict so quickly, is that any leverage for the defense to say hey, you know they didn't consider the facts here. does that give the defense any chance to say we are going to appeal this or anything like that because of the quickness of the verdict. >> douglas woods said last night he was disappointed in the verdict, but that he felt
9:05 am
that they had made their case for second degree and even though they didn't put on a case his strategy was to question, every witness who came up or virtually every witness who came up and try to show to the jury this happened very quickly that she just lost it and it wasn't a premeditated attack. but since i sat there and listened to everything myself, i can see how the jurors were swayed that it was first degree premeditated murder because of the savagery of the attack and she then brittany norwood then went into hours and hours of this staging of a crime scene and it really was extraordinary the steps she took to try to set it up and then the state was able to show that for several days she held to the story and said stuff like any good news to the detectives,
9:06 am
five days later, thinking that she was getting away with it and so when you are sitting there, and you listen to all this, it is hard to imagine anyone could really walk away and say this really was just a spur of the moment attack. >> so we wait now for sentencing. >> sentencing january 27th, the state says they want life without possibility of parole, douglas woods said he will make a case for less than that. >> all right paul wagner thank you for your insight. >> you are welcome. to another case now the man suspected in the murder of his estranged wife and her young son is back in maryland, curtis lopez was extradited from north carolina yesterday, police arrested him there, after an amber alert was issued for his step son 11-year-old william mcclean the amber alert was sent out when his mother jane was found murdered in her clarks burg home and william missing his remains were found
9:07 am
in a wooded area off clarks burg road. charges in williams death will likely be filed soon. new this morning a woman rescued from a burning house montgomery county right now she is fighting for her life she was pulled from the home 4700 block iris street rockville 4:00 a.m. this morning a man who made it out of the house, before fire crews arrived had serious injuries but expected to survive two firefighters went to the hospital with minor injuries the bulk of the fire was in the basement it got so bad firefighters had to evacuate the home and just fight the fire from the outside. turning to harassment claims against herman cain he is denying claims from a third woman she reportedly considered filing a work place complaint against cain. he is denying that the former business ceo did anything wrong
9:08 am
and denouncing what is being called a smear campaign. i am joined by paula jone's lawyer in the president clinton sex scandal good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> thanks for coming in it does indeed give perspective on this you have people we learned their name, basically they are saying -- alleging the powerful people have done something wrong, it is huge, it always becomes front page news can you tell us about the nature of these allegations. >> well, they are bombastic in the sense once a charge like this is leveled against the public officials it does become news but we have to step back and herman cane's case and try to understand what in fact the claim is we don't know precisely there are details with respect to a third woman that has come out saying mr. cain invited her to some hotel room or some home which she declined if that was the extent of the allegation there was no
9:09 am
effect on her terms or conditions of her employment i am not sure that will give rise to a claim of legally valid claim for sex july harassment mind you -- sexual harassment mind you it was a claim she could have brought in the 1990s she chose not to, and to come out, after 20 years it seems much. in the case of these other women two of them signed con phi den i can't likety agreements one -- confidentiality agreements one of them fought to speak up get out of that what does that tell you she wanted to come forward and speak out. >> my understanding she thought about speaking out and then thought the better of it she signed an agreement way back when that in order for her to get money she would remain silent. and she needs to abide by that agreement. quite frankly i don't think con phi den i can't likety agreements -- confidentiality agreements are good as a public
9:10 am
matter they don't allow to provide insight into the claims were. if you have a manufacturer of a defective product that causes harm or doctor that causes grave injury you hush up those settlements the public at large has no ability to look and see what the manufacturer or doctor might have done in this case there is no accountability you can't get to the underlying facts because of the confidentiality. i think the more important problem here for the campaign is not so much the charges of sexual harassment, now when i say that, i cannot tolerate, and we should not tolerate sexual harassment in the work place but what i am saying with respect to herman cain he is slipping and sliding in terms of the truthfulness of the underlying facts, in the sense that well, allegations of sexual harassment never happened, well, okay, sexual
9:11 am
harassment claims were filed yes, now we know that. there was no agreement well, yes, there was. first he blames it on the liberal media now he says well, no, it was this guy curt ander son who used to work for me i just heard him on tv and he said i don't even know what cain is talking about. >> his response is not one that you would have advised him on. >> it is not forthcoming not truthful we are electing a public official who is going to be president of the united states who is going to be the chief law enforcement officer of the united states and what that means is that you are going to be, and up hold the rule of law in the united states if the president, potential presidential candidate can't stand up and tell the truth, about these basic facts, well, can we really count on him and her to tell the truth when it gets down and dirty. >> we know how the paula jones
9:12 am
case ended it started this domino effect that ended up with improofment of president clinton let -- impeachment of president clinton let me ask how damaging is this? is the inning theority looked at in -- integrity looked at in a questionable manner. >> you have to look at integrity, the person running to occupy the most powerful position in the united states in the world. the charges may not be appropriate they may not be legally valid claims people settle claims for all sorts of reasons because there was a payment of money doesn't mean that in fact he was guilty as charged. but, what is more important is that he is slipping and sliding with the truth, first there were never any charges, second there was no agreement, then we know those were falsehoods, third, liberal media that is after me, it has something to do with racism that didn't work we will change it now we will
9:13 am
blame this guy ander son he is the guy now we are going to blame perry he is the guy well, wait a minute stop. just tell the truth. you were involved in some sexual harassment claims they were settled nothing to it move on. lawyer, attorney also who represented paula jones in the president clinton sex case in the 90s my goodness thanks for coming in. >> a long time ago. >> good to see you thank you. all right thank you very much president obama in prance obama in france, the economic summit usually focuses on the global economy but the greek debt crisis is dominating the most important task for world leaders is resolve the european financial world crisis. >> occupy movement continues around the nation things got

welcome back republicans ruled in the state senate 1999 to 2007 and may be poised to seize control again in the upcoming elections, robert mccart any metro columnist with the washington post he writes about it this morning good to see you thanks for coming in. >> good to see you tony. >> this is something of a surprise it seems as recently as 2, 3, 4 months ago democrats were county dent they would maintain control in the --
9:18 am
maintain control in the state senate. >> the climate is favouring republicans looking ahead to next tuesday's election. i was in richmond talking the people in mid-september, top republican politicians said they thought they would be lucky to take away the state senate from the democrats in the election right now the tune has changed and they are pretty confident of getting control and maybe even you know, fairly comfortable majority. >> the question is what has changed in such a short period of time. >> the main thing that changed was the conservative trend that we've seen in the last two elections in 2009/2010, continuing in this one especially in the southern part of the state, up around the northern virginia suburbs are not providing the bull work against extreme conservative democrats hoped but even those
9:19 am
closed races, even though the democrats weigh, republicans will pick up enough in the southern parts of the state to gain a control, control of the senate basically there is two things really first of all the democratic brand is really discredited right now in virginia, especially among -- obviously among republicans but among independents, swing voters, they are a big important part you know, it will be a low turn out election, get out the vote operation will be very important, this is an off off year election, so the numbers are not going to be very high but basically the people are looking at washington, they are seeing you know the economy is bad, they are seeing you know too much federal spending, the democrats control the white house, and that is hurting the democratic brand that is hurting -- helping republicans even in statewide elections the other factor governor mcdonald,
9:20 am
republican is quite popular very high approval rating, including among independents i heard -- i went out to listen to some debateinterviewed some politicians in northern virginia, democratic politicians are emphasizing, in many cases how well they work with governor mcdonald, puller in a tight race with jeff frederick she told me she didn't support his campaign but things governor mcdonald has done a good job. heidi puller, they are emphasizing they can work with mcdonald's they are praising mcdonald's because they thing that will help them get elected. >> what about redisstricting there has been some redistricting that has gone on and the democrats really control them. >> mostly control. >> mostly. they did actually, an interesting survey sort of inside baseball debate about this the original proposal, democrats control the senate
9:21 am
now they basically drew the line the initial plan they presented y the governor by mcdonald and they had the come back with something not quite as favourable to them they still drew the lines to protect incumbents they were very confident after these lines were drawn by them, that they would be able to protect the majority, republicans control the house of delegates they drew the line to protect themselves, in the house of delegates, but it doesn't seem to have been enough even though they controlled the lines, it seems right now, we have to wait and see what the voters have to say tuesday seems right now even though democrats drew the lines and thought this would be enough to protect themselves trends are strong enough they are vulnerable. >> irony is that it is local politics but may very well send the results may send a signal to the national parties and white house as well. >> yeah, well, if republicans
9:22 am
gain control of the state senate that will control all levers of power in richmond, they already control the house of delegates they are definitely going to keep control if they gain the senate they will have everything virginia, 2008 voted for obama, democrats for the first time since 1964, in a presidential race and everybody was saying oh, boy, virginia is really in place, democrats are coming back they will take over virginia this would be if republicans win as i personally expect then this would really you know put an end to definitive end to any long term conclusions there. >> well, we will see what happens, thanks for coming in. >> good to see you. >> alison. >> 9:22 a.m. occupy wall street movement, wages on with no end in sight 3,000 protestors shut down the port in oakland california yesterday it is still closed this morning earlier in the day
